Dozens of Students Honored in Chapel

Dozens of Students Honored in Chapel

DALLAS, Texas- Whether the school be giant or tiny, excellence emerges and deserves proper recognition. At the annual Honors Chapel this year, fifty students were honored. In a student body of roughly three hundred, that’s a high percentage of honorees, indicative of the spirit of Christian influence that DCC hopes to inculcate.

After music by seniors Joshua Bowers, Amarys Chavez, and Caitlin Martin, singing “This Is the Day,” by Phil Wickham, Dr. Perry Stepp, academic dean, addressed the assembly, using as his texts Psalm 1 (read by Student Council leader Joey Martinez) and Luke 16.10. Dr. Stepp contrasted the two ways of life, the blessed and the not-blessed. Both, he said, are achieved—or fallen into—in seemingly small steps. “We fall out of good as we compromise and try things we shouldn’t, and we become successful as we are faithful in small things.”

“College,” said Dr. Stepp, somewhat surprisingly, “is a small thing,” but it is a long series of small steps that affect the future. “When we cheat in the small things, we damage the future. When we are faithful in the small things, we can eventually change the world.”

Ms. Bonnie Graem’s piano prelude, “Put Your Hand in the Hand of the Man Who Stilled the Water,” called to mind from the outset the right way to tread the right path.
